Syria strategy disastrous

  • Follow Letters

America’s commander in chief sternly stated that he is drawing a red line with Syria, only to now lie about ever saying it. We know he said it. We saw the video of him saying it. This Nobel Peace Prize “winner” is all guns a-blazing to bomb, strike – whatever – Syria over the use of chemical weapons against its own people.

This president is lobbying Congress and the world to support attacking Syria in retaliation for the Syrian government killing Syrian people – even though he did absolutely nothing in retaliation for an American consulate in Libya being attacked and Americans being killed in said attack. Suppose that the Syrian leadership is ousted and the regime friendly to al-Qaida ascends to power. What then?

We have no national interests in Syria. That said, if this regime is ousted, what will take over is exponentially worse and will indeed become a national interest. Isn’t it funny that when President George W. Bush had the support of more than 50 nations and Congress to deal with Iraq, the liberals rained condemnation upon him for being a warmonger?

Well, what say you about the Nobel recipient? And before you respond and lie about there being no weapons of mass destruction, there were. I was in Kuwait and Iraq during that time and remember where I was when word came down that some were found, and it was suspected that some were sent to Syria.

Plain and simple, this is an egg farm on the collective face of the media, the Democratic Party and diehard Obama loyalists who hang on his every word regardless of reality or reason.

During the past presidential campaign, speaking about Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden said, “He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he’s ready to go to war in Syria and Iran.” Who’s ready to go to war with Syria, Joseph?

I’ll say this about Biden: During the 2008 Democratic presidential primary campaign, he said of then-Sen. Obama: “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”

Then there’s Secretary of State John Kerry, who just a few short days ago pontificated, “When I was in the United States Senate, I supported military action in any number of occasions, including Grenada ... .” Lie! He wasn’t in the Senate when America invaded Grenada.

Does anyone in this administration have any common sense or the ability to be truthful?

You don't have to research....he was designated an enemy combatant with NO checks and balances. It was a direct violation of the 5th amendment that I posted for you.

OK

What about the people at GETMO? I believe they are considered to be on American soil and yet they are considered to be enemy combatants.

OK I am done for a little while

Angela has got me over a barrel and I have reached the limits of my knowledge on the subject.

I guess using the doctor's case that shot up the Army base, I see how the Constitution would have to apply to those the drone killed. I could never be a lawyer!!

Good argument Angela!!

These comments are in order

These comments are in order and I expect no more of you. People that have Rush as their fearless leader and Jesse Helms as their hero. It's really sad that people are thinking like this in 2013. In hell you will lift your eyes carrying all this hate..............

GITMO is NOT US soil, and they are NOT citizens of the US. That is why they are kept there.

It's thoughtful discussion, "progressive" style.

If you read Teacup's prior posts, it is quite ironic that he pines for those who have so much hate.

T3 Obama got a set of cards

T3 Obama got a set of cards with pictures on them and chose who would live and die. One of those was a 16 year old born in Arizona. He was living with his father, a jihadist in Yemini also an American. Both were killed by drones with no hearing.

Yes, the 16 year old was ready to bomb America! Even if you shoot a bunch of American soldiers at a military post the army can't take you out and execute you with out due process!

....deadly violence against the United States military and Her people."

They were? Did we get their side of the story? How do we know they weren't just unhappy former democrats who were badmouthing the President?

Wonder why we kill U.S. citizens with drones, without trials, but bend over backwards to keep known terrorists alive to be released, or stand trial, at Gitmo?

Well faithson, Obama is a

Well faithson, Obama is a constitutional scholar so I guess he would know, but a judge would be better than Obama and a deck of cards violating the constitutional guarantees of the US citizen. Don't forget that Obama wanted to give constitutional rights granted to US citizens to terrorests captured on battle fields or in foriegn countries.

Typical leftist reply

Don't like the FACTS, well, call reciting them "hate" and "racist".

So, according to bod's post of this morning, anyone who questions Obama or points out his lies is full of hate and a racist. This just in, Obama's mother is a white girl from Kansas.

Question for bod...or anyone else who cares to answer in a civil, rational manner: when is pointing out lies by an American president not, that's N O T, not, racist? And oh by the way, am I a racist for pointing out John Kerry's lie?

The liberal mindset is truly horrifying.
